Manoomin dedication

Artist Sara Balbin addresses people attending the spiritual dedication of the sculpture Manoomin (Food That Grows on Water) at noon on Saturday at Indian Mounds Park in Rice Lake.

Several members of the Ojibwe gathered on the shores of Rice Lake, once a hot bed of Anishinaabe commerce due to its prolific beds of wild rice, to dedicate a sculpture honoring the history of the Native Americans who called the area home for thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans.
